Music and lyricsEdit

"Super Bass" was co-written by Minaj, Ester Dean, Roahn Hylton,[5][6] and Daniel "Kane Beatz" Johnson, who produced the song alongside JMIKE.[7] While being interviewed by MTV News during the video shoot for the single, Minaj explained the song's concept, stating: "'Super Bass' is about the boy that you are crushing over, [...] And you kind of want to get your mack on, but you're taking the playful approach."[8] The song utilizes electronic music and pop in its composition, while Minaj raps over a hip hop drum beat,[9] while also infusing elements of J-pop combined with an upbeat hook.[10][11][12] It uses a busy beat that is interspersed with digital rain drop sound effects and strong bass. Minaj's vocals in the song have been described as "breathy".[13] "Super Bass" is written in the key of G-sharp minor with a moderate tempo of 128 beats per minute.[14] Minaj's lyrics in the song are often provocative and suggestive, with lines like "He just gotta give me that look, when he give me that look / Then the panties comin' off, off, uh" and a catchy onomatopoetic refrain: "Boom, badoom, boom, boom, badoom, boom, bass, he got dat super bass".[11]

Brad Wete of Entertainment Weekly stated that the song describes Minaj's type of man as "one who hits the gym often and has first-class... money" as she states: "He pops bottles and he’s got the right kind of build.... He’s always in the air / But he never flies coach".[15] Charley Rogulewski of AOL's The Boombox stated that "the uber-catchy 'boom, badoom, boom, boom' chorus makes 'Super Bass' the most pop-friendly Minaj song released to radio [sic] yet".[16] Described as a lighter side to Minaj by Jessica Sinclair of Long Island Press, the song gets more in-depth with a little more pop and an upbeat hook that "really sticks"; however, Minaj still assists the song's pop edge with "crazy rapping skills".[12]

Critical receptionEdit

Wesley Case of The Baltimore Sun gave the song a positive review, stating that it was an "obvious hit". He compared the song to the rest of Pink Friday, stating that it is much more potent as compared to the rest of the album.[13] Case later added: "Pink Friday is short on memorable hooks, but 'Super Bass' is an exception".[13] Rap-Up described the tune as "infectious".[17] Jessica Sinclair of Long Island Press complimented Nicki Minaj for taking "center stage" on the song, due to her solo performance, and added that in doing so Minaj created a success.[12] Sinclair additionally commented on the song as a lighter side to Minaj, and complimented the hook as upbeat and added that it "really sticks".[12] Rosie Gray of BlackBook complimented the song as a "killer".[18] Alex Pielak of Metro compared Minaj's "Super Bass" to Beyoncé's "Move Your Body", stating that: "Nicki wins for the sheer number of words she's managed to cram in – and therefore takes the face off".[11]

Lewis Corner from Digital Spy gave the single four out of a possible five stars. Corner wrote that the song's chorus was "sharper than a Sherbet Dib Dab." Minaj's "eccentric rapping style" was praised in the review with Corner writing that the song was likely to become her first solo top ten hit in the United States or the United Kingdom.[9] Claire Suddath of Time magazine named "Super Bass" one of the Top 10 Songs of 2011.[19] As of January 2015, Billboard listed the song as one of "The 20 Best Songs of 2010s (So Far)".[20]

Billboard writer, Tatiana Cirisano, stated that in 2011, Minaj was "one of the few mainstream female rappers ... thanks to her ability to bridging audience boundaries with genre-blending hits," which "established her as a pop superstar", and the song "both shaped and reflected the music and culture" of the mentioned year.[21]

BackgroundEdit

"I just wanted to do something real colorful and cutesy. This is an icy world, it's a sexy world, it's a playful world.
